I have been thinking about Genesis and the verse there that influences so much of Christian culture. The verse is Genesis 1:38. This verse mentions that God says to mankind, “Be fruitful and multiply” and in my life among Christian Americans I have heard this verse often quoted and referred to as a reason I should be having a large family. I have one son because I really am looking at the global issues of population growth and, though, I would have selfishly loved to have a huge family, I ethically want the world to stay wild and there to be less people in our population in the future in a peaceful way of population reduction. The only way I can see that sort of reduction in population is people taking the initiative and having a culture shift to encourage smaller family sizes. When I try and have that sort of conversation with evangelical Christians in my community people are often very offended and refer to Genesis 1:38. I looked for other references of that sentiment in a topic search through the Bible but don’t see evidence of further encouraging of population growth and large families beyond that one verse. I wonder why that verse is so clung to in our culture. I am surprised that it is the verse in the first chapters of the Bible that is so influential. There are other verses say verse 2:25 about being naked and unashamed that are very taboo in our culture. Why does 1:38 mean so much but 2:25 have no meaning in our society. I also wonder why or how we change which verses are influential in our culture. Anyway, wanting to have an honest dialogue with no judgement or hate. Thanks!

Hi Matt

I have been reading your posts often on my phone, and have gotten a lot out of them all. But typing on my phone to try to read and respond is challenging. I never set up my own log in account on our family laptop until today. Sue helped me, and now I see that the laptop makes it much easier to read and respond.

Hopefully I will get comfortable using the laptop for more correspondence.
I rebuke the thought “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”. Old dogs have a lifetime of accumulating good tricks and bad tricks. Here’s trusting I can tell the difference, and make the technology leap to new, good choices.
Great website!

I have enjoyed praying with you on Thursdays. I will be cooking at Shiloh Bible Camp this week and will not pray with you this Thursday in person, only in spirit. Love and grace Margaret
